Punishment Basket

:

Check out this basket:

It’s no ordinary basket.  When little Korean kids accidentally wet the bed at night, some parents would make them strap on this type of basket and haul salt around.  Or something like that.  My Korean friends out there, please correct me if I’m messing up the explanation.

I think wearing the punishment basket was some sort of public humiliation to motivate the kids to not pee in the bed anymore.  If it was a successful technique, I’m thinking Longaberger might have a great idea for its newest line of baskets.  I know that’s pretty manly of me to know what Longaberger is.  I’m gonna drink my Fresca now.
